Right, today I have decided I am going to enter the etape caledonia in 2012. A few mates got back with decent times and big smiles and have persuaded me not to put it off any longer.

I'm going to ride the route in the next few months at a leisurely pace to see what it is like if anyone want a road run. My first year Target will be sub 6 hours - (13.5 mph average) You read it here first.

This is it set up for me though the wheels are different. I think it has a 110 or 120 stem and I have a 130 somewhere. Also have a layback post that should give a bit more cabin room.
